The Stranger by Anna Del Mar
Series: Wounded Warrior #2
Genres: Romantic Suspense
When a mysterious stranger is your only hope...
The scars of the past have left their mark, both physical and emotional, on former military pilot Seth Erickson. Off-grid in the far reaches of the bitter Alaskan wilderness, he wants only to be left alone with his ghosts. But he can’t ignore a woman in need—beautiful, stranded and nearly frozen with fear.
Summer Silva never imagined that the search for her missing sister would leave her abandoned on a wintry back road, barely escaping with her life from a cold-blooded killer for hire. Now, hiding out in the isolated cabin of the secretive wounded warrior who saved her, Summer knows she must do what she fears most. Putting her trust in a stranger is all she has left.
All defenses are down
After a fiery first night together, Seth and Summer are bound by a need as powerful as a Bering Sea superstorm—and vulnerable to enemies just as fierce. For Seth, reawakened by desire, there is no sacrifice too great, no memory too dark, to keep Summer safe. But murder and treason lurk everywhere and Summer may not survive Alaska’s ruthless winter.

This is the second book in the Wounded Warrior series and I must say I enjoyed it. Seth is the quintessential brooding, distrusting alpha man. When he finds a half frozen, injured woman in the middle of an Alaskan snowstorm he immediately is suspicious thinking his cousin has set him up. For as un-trusting as Seth is Summer is quick to trust. She headed off to Alaska to find her sister without really thinking things through and has no problem trusting Seth when he saves her life. They are forced to work together to find Summer’s sister and save Seth’s business reputation which leads to them finding love with one another all the way.
These two are perfect for one another. Where Seth is still dealing with his injury and everything that happened in Afghanistan, Summer is dealing with her own sleeping disorder that has controlled much of her life. In each other they find the trust and caring that they both need without realizing it. While they may seem like an unlikely pair when you dig digger you see just how much they compliment each other. As always Anna de Mar has created a world where the chemistry is enough to melt the Alaskan tundra!
My Alaskan Adventure
By: Anna del Mar
I was flying over the tundra in a sputtering single engine four-seater when I conceived The Stranger. It was my third trip to Alaska and my husband and I were on the way to Coldfoot, Alaska, population 10. Why we wanted to go out to the middle of nowhere had to do with our thirst to see more of the magnificent land we’d discovered in our travels. We wanted to check out the pipeline and visit Gates of the Arctic National Park, to drive the Dalton Highway and feel the Tundra beneath our feet. Above all, we wanted to bask in the vastness of Alaska, in the contrasts of a terrain that can reward you with infinite views or challenge your spirit with its cruel, ruthless beauty.
From my Alaskan adventures, The Stranger was born. The Stranger is the second novel of my Wounded Warrior Series, a collection of stories that feature strong heroines fighting to make their mark in the world and the brave, hot, sexy alphas who will protect the women they love with all they’ve got. One cool aspect of the series is that you can read it in whichever order you’d like in order to meet an extraordinary brotherhood of unforgettable heroes. Whether you pick up the Amazon best seller, The Asset or The Stranger, you’re in for the full journey.
The Stranger begins with Summer Silva. When her sister runs away with a guy she met on the internet, Summer, a warmth-loving Miami architect chases her reckless sibling to Alaska and finds her life in danger from more than the elements. Only a stranger, a wounded warrior who is also an Alaskan tycoon with a quarreling family as complicated as her own and no time for a lady in distress—let alone one who has a secret that’s big trouble—can save her from disaster. Together, two strangers from different worlds and opposite spectrums of the thermometer must unravel the intrigues that threaten their lives to chase after a new dream, in majestic Alaska.
The Stranger is a hot romantic suspense story that will take you away on a grand adventure. Alaska is the third protagonist and the hidden character running the show. Against this stunning background, romance acquires a new meaning, an enduring commitment to survive and thrive in one of the last wild places on earth.
